At the bed and breakfast, we get guests from all over the world. Many of them arrive with various dietary restrictions, which calls for alterations to our recipes, or new ones altogether. This vegan pancake recipe was created one morning when two lovely young ladies notified us that they were vegan. The resulting recipe turned out to be even better than the original!
Vegan cooking requires a creative approach to getting enough protein. Many recipes will often add a dash of protein-rich ingredients in unexpected places. In this case, the protein source and key flavor ingredient gets two birds with one stone. The distinct flavor of these pancakes comes from almond meal, which delivers a boost of protein, while superfood flaxseeds add a punch of nutrition and help with batter cohesiveness, usually maintained by eggs. Almond milk and potassium-rich bananas give this breakfast dish even more flavor, eliminating the need for any added sugar.
Every bite is flavorful and full of texture and a little chewiness. Bananas keep these pancakes so soft and moist that you’ll be less tempted to reach for the syrup, and the nut and seed meals interspersed with fruitiness keep the texture varied and help you start the day with a dish full of healthy and filling fiber.
A delicious vegan breakfast alternative to your traditional pancakes, these are so delightful that they have become our primary pancake recipe.
